Heliaster microbrachius

We just learned about the Freyella Elegans.

Another type of starfish is Heliaster microbrachius.

This starfish grows to be about 4 inches, and can have lots more arms than most starfish, and also a bigger disc for the center of their body.

They can be purple, black, yellow or white, and they live in the Pacific Ocean near Mexico.
